Ken Harris was a brilliant animator of action, a master of the art of getting characters to express personality
and emotion while doing things.
One of his greatest achievements was the final scene in A BEAR FOR PUNISHMENT (1951) especially the
dance sequence, where, in addition to the basic gag of Mama Bear tap dancing while never changing her
usual clueless facial expression, he creates all kinds of hilarious movements with the legs and feet,
suggestive of someone dancing up a storm and yet conveying boredom and stiffness through her body language.
